Hi @yusuframdane

Do you have any experience with maintaining a server or do you want to learn?
If no, then DigitalOcean might not be the right place for you.
This is a little different than a normal website host, since you get a full server and need to setup and maintain that.
If you’re just looking for a simple place to host your website, then SiteGround or similar will be better choices.

If you want to learn, then first step is to get familiar with the console:

PuTTY is a Windows program used to establish SSH sessions with Linux servers. In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to use PuTTY to create SSH key pairs to use within the DigitalOcean interface. You can then easily create servers that you can log into without a password.
